Ok, this might require a little explanation. 2 Girls 1 Cup is a video making it around teh internets. It’s one of the most disgusting things you’ll ever see. If you want to know all about it, here’s the Urban Dictionary description. If you actually want to see it, you can watch it at the official site, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Pro Wrestler and reality TV star Hulk Hogan might want to start paying attention to those uber-irritating eHarmony commercials. Hogan’s wife Linda filed for divorce this week, and it what can only be seen as a bad sign, the Hulkster found out about it from a reporter seeking comment. Yoink.
